Chapter 4-Why revival tarries-Leonard Ravenhill
Where are the Elijahs of God?
- Elijah lived with God. He thought about the nation’s sin like God; he grieved over sin like God; he spoke against sin like God. He was all passion in his prayers and passionate in his denunciation of evil in the land. He had no smooth preaching. Passion fired his preaching, and his words were on the hearts of men as molten metal on their flesh.
- If the Church today had as many organizers as she has advisers,we would have a revival in a year!
- Mere preachers may help anybody and hurt nobody; but prophets will stir everybody and madden somebody. The preacher may go with the crowd; the prophet goes against it.
- The price is high.God doesn’t want partnership with us,but ownership of us .
